Mezzo soprano Elizabeth Turnbull has many and varied credits including appearances with major orchestras and opera companies across North America and Europe. Her operatic and concert experience has ranged from traditional baroque to contemporary modern pieces, and has included premieres of new operatic and song repertoire. Many of her Canadian operatic performances have been heard across the country on CBC’s ‘Saturday Afternoon at the Opera’.
In addition to being Director of Opera Workshop, Ms. Turnbull has been an instructor of voice at the Department of Music at the University of Alberta since 2009.
